scarborough, take the issue of syria. how does the united states, a second obama term, try to affect the end game if there's a post assad syria, which as richard laid out could be so dangerous? >> we have to understand there are limits to american power. we can't go into syria. and affect that outcome dramatically. we did make a choice in egypt. and there were a lot of diplomats in the middle east that were calling me ahead of time that i'm friends with saying it was a terrible mistake, and we'll rue the day we made that decision and abandoned a friend of 30 years. that's something that historians will have to make their minds up with, but when it comes to foreign policy and i want to push back on richard, too. and richard, i'm glad you're back too, but -- don't you like how axelrod said, i'm glad you're back, but -- let me make my point. but the thing is, though, so much of the united states' power now is not going to be -- we're not going to project power by dropping drones in country after country after country where we haven't even declared war. there is going to be a terrible backlash f

crime. and these are all well within the power of the president of the united states. but as president obama said yesterday, some people will use these measures to make gun owners fearful. >> even the slightest hint of some sensible, responsible legislation in this area fans this notion that somehow here it comes. and that everybody's guns are going to be taken away. >> when it comes to executive orders, president obama is hardly a tyrant. this president has issued the fewest executive orders of any president in over a century. there will be no executive order on the second amendment. this hasn't stopped the obama haters from ramping up their resistance. tea party senator rand paul is driving the campaign of fear. >> i'm against having a king. i think having a monarch is what we fought the american revolution over. and someone who wants to bypass the constitution, bypass congress, that's someone who wants to act like a king or a monarch. i've been opposed to executive orders even with republican president. but one that wants to infringe on the second amendment, we will fight tooth and

avenue. barack obama is the president of the united states. he is a very powerful man, responsible for many things. but he is not why most republicans have taken a pledge, saying they will never raise a dollar in taxes no matter what the budget deficit looks like. he is not why they decided to put the whole u.s. economy at risk if they don't get their way on spending cuts. he is not why the white house partnered with gun legislation, no matter how small, is tantamount to taking away guns, he is not why extreme movements like extreme ideas like going back to a gold standard in the middle of an economic crisis have taken root on the right. this country needs and deserves a better republican party. and there are a lot of people in the republican right now who want a better republican party who are trying to push it there. those people, i think include key leaders in the party, like the house republican leaders this week who are trying to talk their members down from the ledge. they include folks like david brooks who in saying that republicans look deeply unreasonable, they are tellin

the campaign for a man named barack obama to be the president of the united states, you have this obvious issue which is most guys don't know somebody named barack obama. he doesn't look like a lot of voters. joe biden is kind of quintessentially like next door neighbor material. i thought this clip was interesting in 2008, here's joe biden being that kind of validator for voters on specifically, this issue of gups. take a look. >> i guarantee you, barack obama ain't taking my shotguns. so don't buy that malarkey. don't buy it. they're going to start pedalling that to you. i got two. if he tries to fool with my barretta, he has a problem. i like that little over and under. i'm not bad with it. so, give me a break! >> i think that's joe biden threatened to shoot his running mate. is that the subtext of that quote? that to me was quintessentially the role he's played from a kind of commit cal in terms of the image -- crafting the immamg of barack obama and selling him to voters. >> one i'm thrilled that malarkey has been around that long. it's an important word in our history now. but i think wha

states and it was a 41,000 vote gap in west virginia. more than 230,000 in kentucky. the gap got wider when john kerry lost in 2004. you see the pattern here. president obama improved on those numbers slightly in 2008, but still lost both states and his numbers fell off the table, if you will, this past november, the gap nearly doubled to 180,000 in west virginia and he lost kentucky by more than 400,000 votes. but last year, the war on coal had become a familiar theme on billboards, campaign signs and on tv. coal related donors poured more than $12 million into the campaign. 90% of it to republican, believe it or not, but to blame the president's agenda doesn't take in the bigger picture. coal production has dropped because demand is down and easily accessible coal has disappeared. low cost natural gas and fracking threatens to cut them even more. never the less, the politics of the war on coal seems to be solidly on the side of the republicans and senator rockefell rockefeller's retirement creates a prime opportunity for the west virginia gop. shelley cap toe has said she's running a
